How to use Journal Prompts

Consider finding a journal that pleases you to take on this journey. It can be any color or design. Choose whatever works for you—small to fit in your pocket or purse, or large with space for drawing or lengthy writing. This will help you tune into the moment, sort out your thoughts, be more patient, and connect with your higher self. It allows for introspect (examining your thoughts and feelings). Journaling can be powerful, it can help you see the current motivation or thoughts and review if there is a need to change anything. It show you steps needed to create a new motivation or focus?

Attracting your thoughts from your higher self are valuable. Writing about your experience can help you understand your current motivation and what is going on in your life at that moment. Then you can align yourself with purpose, see when you get sidetracked, and learn how to correct your thoughts to refocus your goals.

 Journal prompts :

What do I want to do this spring ? how will I celebrate Ostara?

What am I ready to transform  within my life? what intentions do I want to set this spring { more self care, eating healthy, exercise, take time for myself, work on being more aware of world and outside influences good or bad , release old stagnant / negative energy cords
